Experience

I’ve been taking Norgeston for around 10 years after having to come off the combined pill due to aura migraines and high blood pressure. The downsides are occasionally irregular periods, occasional spotting between periods, tender breasts and acne on the jawline/ lower cheeks. This all seems to vary in intensity! I’ve had to put up with it generally as there aren’t any other contraception options I’d be interested in.
